It’s been pointed out on Ferrarichat that the outside laced wire wheels is mounted on the front on the passenger side and on the rear on the driver’s side. Any particular reason for doing that? http://www.ferrarichat.com/forum/vintage-thru-365-gtc4-sponsored-vintage-driving-machines/509295-petrolicious-skip-barbers-275-gtb.html
Can anyone ID the car in the background? Not the 275, but the convert. behind on the lift. Curious…
Do you mean the black one? I am pretty sure its an early Boxster 986. When I say early I mean 1996-03 years, before they changed to a glass rear window which is smaller than the plastic one.
Interesting piece of history. As for the car I have always found something a little cumbersome with the front end of the 275gtb, lights that seem too large, a front that goes on and on but this short nose version is far prettier and better proportioned – a case of form before function if the front end lift was the only reason for lengthening the nose.
What a car!!!
Merry Christmas to everyone….
My friends and I have been attending the vintage races on Labor Day weekend at Lime Rock for almost 30 years. We rent a big van and drive up from northern N.J. Thank you very, very much Mr. Barber for helping to preserve the feel of the track and the overall ambiance of the event. And thanks for sharing the 275 with us.
Was going through withdrawals yesterday and now see this. Saved!
Great film and a cool car (must admit I prefer the shape of the long nose version though). Surprised that Mr Barber has Pirelli P4000 tyres on it though. I found them to be very poor on the Daytona, especially in wet conditions.
Maybe the most beautifull Ferrari ever made, and with Skip Barber, our first christmas gift…..
thank you so much Petrolicious.
Merry Christmas and congratulation for all the job done in 2015.
What a charming character.
Love the calm and presence of his speech – goes really well with scenery and the way he just drives (not rides) his 275!
Petrolicious, you did it again, and this time without any Porsche 🙂
